Undereye Circles


Under eye circles can make people appear less healthy and vibrant than they normally would. Knowing how they’re caused and, most important of all, how to get rid of them is essential for anyone that wants to look both younger and more refreshed.

What Causes Under Eye Circles?

Under eye circles are usually characterized by puffiness and a bruise-like appearance, under eye circles are an affliction that most everyone will suffer from at one point or another. Tiny blood vessels (capillaries) surround the thin, delicate skin around our eyes, working to transport red blood cells. Sometimes these blood cells can end up in the skin, outside of the capillaries, and are then reabsorbed by the body. When this happens the haemoglobin (the red blood cell molecule that provides their vivid red colour) is broken down as well, leaving behind pigmentation that can range in colour from dark purple to light blue or black.

Just like bruises, under eye circles are caused by the body working to “clean up” spilled red blood cells that have escaped the capillaries. Bruises are usually caused by the breaking of capillaries (as the result of physical trauma) but around the eyes, where the skin is so delicate, it’s much easier for the same process to occur without an injury to start it. As we age and our skin becomes even thinner and normal irritants (like rubbing our eyes or being out in the sun) begin to take a more visible toll.

What Can I do to Treat Under Eye Circles?

Under eye circles can be treated in a number of different ways, both natural and cosmetic. Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our general health and, not surprisingly, it carries over to our appearance as well. The strength of our immune system depends greatly on our having adequate rest. Without it, bruising and broken capillaries are more common and under eye circles can appear. Stress reduction functions in a similar manner where too much stress has a negative effect on our immune system. Working to reduce stress and sleep for 7-8 hours per night can make a drastic difference on the appearance of under eye circles.

When natural methods aren’t enough to cure under eye circles there are treatments that can help. Skin Vitality offers Juvéderm™ which is able to restore lost proteins to the skin around the eyes, protecting from the root cause of the problem. VivierSkin Peptide CR Eye Crean also works to reduce the appearance of under eye circles. The Eye Treatment is topical and is applied under both eyes at morning and night in order to safely lighten dark circles while also helping to eliminate puffiness.
